Globacom’s renewal of the live broadcast of the 2021/2022 EPL season, which kicks off last weekend, the company in its Matchday2 statement issues on Friday, confirmed its sponsorship of the live broadcast of EPL matches on SuperSport channels on DSTV.
This is the 9th season that the telecommunications company has brought EPL matches live to the living rooms and event centers of football fans in the two countries through sponsorship of the broadcast.
“Right from 2003 when we rolled out services, our company has been connecting with the passion of football fans across the continent.

Football fans on the continent deserve the best and we will continue to delight them”, Globacom said in a statement.
As the competition gathers momentum, match day 2 will be another opportunity for fans in Nigeria and Ghana to follow their favourite clubs’ matches live courtesy of the Globacom-sponsored broadcast.
